My day was made today when I learnt that I had won the April Giveaway from the blog at Want it, Need it, Quilt. Thanks to Jane I am to receive 12 FQs of Gypsy from Westminster Fabrics.
And what a beautiful wedding it was. That amazing dress! I'm still trying to work out why my initial reaction was to think of Guinevere. Perhaps I'm influenced by some movie I might have seen depicting that era, or perhaps a book cover. I loved the shape of the veil - no fullness - so simple. Another of my favourites was the white angora bolero Kate wore in the evening. It's many a long year since they were fashionable so it will be fun seeing angora knitwear become popular again. Of course if I had been in London I wouldn't have seen these details which were so clear on our television coverage. But I would have seen those magnificent horses and riders. Where else but London would you see such a display with such a history.
Now I have to find a quilt pattern to use these wonderful Gypsy fabrics, something which mixes shapes of varying sizes so as to display some of the larger fabric patterns. Someone has already suggested a hexagon pattern.
Aren't they just beautiful. I am going to have such fun.
